    Great to hear you will soon be up and running again. You are one of us lucky ones...too many losing life because of prostate cancer. As has been said on here before if in doubt get it checked out.

    If any body suspects something is not right please get it checked , doesn’t matter how busy you are see a doctor. My dad was peeing blood just before harvest wouldn’t go before too busy he’d say I’ll go after , went in November he’d got bladder and prostate cancer stage 3. He had operations and treatments which finished him off 3 1/2 years later. It’s been 4 years since we lost him I’ve never seen a strong fit man turn to a frail man in a short time, horrible to see. It’s just eats your body away.
    Please guys get checked for your family’s sake.

  3. I would echo the above, the survival rates for prostate cancer are very very good if you catch it in the early stages. If you think you see a trace of blood in your urine, pee in a sample bottle and get it and yourself to the doctors, the little dip stick test can detect very faint levels of blood in urine: it does not have to look like cherryade.

    Neighbour had what was pioneering surgery in Wolverhampton a few years ago. Persevered and made a good recovery.
